Surprise Cupcakes!

This is my all time FAVORITE cupcake recipe. The great surprise is that they are healthier than regular cupcakes. Try these out and see what you think. You will be in love with them at first bite…vol_0445


1 (18 ounce) box devil’s food cake mix            1 c. canned pumpkin

1/3 cup water                                                      2 Tbsp. oil

2 large eggs                                                        1 large egg white

¾ cup plain yogurt

Preheat oven to 350. Line 24 muffin tins with cupcake paper liners. Combine all of the cake ingredients and mix until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour batter into muffin tins, filling them 2/3 of the way full and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost thinly with whipped frosting.

*I only use Libby’s pumpkin with chocolate cake mix. Other brands I have tried are a stronger pumpkin flavor so it tastes kind of weird. Any flavor of cake mix works with this recipe.
